iMAME and Plenty of MAME ROMs
 
If you have ever used MAME, than you are going to be excited. If you haven't, you will be after I explain why you should be.

iMAME was released to the App Store just two days ago and already it has stirred up the IOS world. First off, iMAME is free and is written in Universal Binary, which means that it will work on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Here is the App Store description:

iMAME is an application designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. The intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten.

You can search for it in the App Store or follow this link.

After you get iMAME installed on your iDevice, you are going to want to get some of the vintage games that many of us grew up on. I'm talking Galaga, Galaxian, Frogger, Pac-man, Ms. Pac-man, Asteroids, Missile Command, Centipede, Millipede, Contra and the list goes on. There are literally thousands of MAME ROMs and they are all free. One great place to get them is here (register to download them for free).

Then, to easily copy them to your iDevice, you will need a program like iExplorer. You can get it free here, for either the Mac or PC. Simply download the MAME ROMs that you want and, using iExplorer, copy them to your iDevice in the /Apps/iMame/Documents folder from your Mac/PC.

I have tried iMAME and many of the older MAME ROMs on both my iPhone 4 and my iPad 2 and they are working great. So give it a try and, if you feel like it, list your favorite games here.
